You know one thing you can always count on? A pink Monique Lhuillier gown to turn every head in the room. It never fails! With her flirty, femme approach to bridal fashion (often with a romantic floral twist!), we often wonder why every bride isn’t satcheting down the aisle in a colorful wedding dress that captures the innately celebratory essence of the day. Jenna McElroy gets the idea. Not only did she include a pink Monique Lhuillier gown in her latest concept for her famed wedding photography workshop, she made it the centerpiece upon which all other design ideas from Westcott Weddings stemmed! Her roll call included delicate lucite dining chairs surrounding a soft blush table, gravity-defying roses that cascade loosely down an antique reclaimed French gazebo, petite macarons in rosy ombre hues atop each place setting… Ahhhh, take me there! As if on cue, Remi & Gold‘s breathtaking floral compositions invite us to pull up a seat to the table, and you can bet it takes us less than .0002 seconds to RSVP with a yes! Shall we?
From the Photographer, Jenna McElroy: For this editorial workshop, the design inspiration came from the stunning Monique Lhullier wedding dress and veil. From the pale blush tulle, to the off the shoulder ruffle sleeves, to the pops of pink flower appliques — the dress exudes femininity, playfulness, and a touch of whimsy which translated into the rest of the design.
The entire color palette was kept very soft and restrained, from the stunning Remi + Gold flowers, to the paper goods from Fine Day Press, to the rentals from Marquee Events. The juxtaposition of the square plates, asymmetrical napkin, vertically placed macarons by Simply Delicious Custom Cakes, and modern glassware were the perfect pairing to the stunning monochromatic florals adorning the table.
There can be beauty and elegance in a simple color palette while still incorporating an immense amount of design and intricate details!
You get the idea… Blush wedding dress + European inspired venue = a Happily Ever After guaranteed!
